  • You seem to be pissed off because I rejected a badly-written patch of yours about a pointless new keyword, and now you're going at war. What's your point in spreading all this FUD really ? Bring Perl 5 to an end ? Make me quit P5P ?

    And seriously are you really believing all this nonsense you're writing about releasing ?

    • Thank you for finally responding directly to me.

      You seem to be pissed off...

      I'm not angry. I'm sad.

      ... because I rejected a badly-written patch of yours about a pointless new keyword....

      Even after all of the complaints about people who talk more than they code, I don't expect standing ovations for producing code, but I would appreciate at least an acknowledgement that I did something about it.

      This is the first time (to my knowledge) you've made any comment about the implementation of the patch. If you

      • Lies and plain lies. I already commented on your patch on P5P. Several [] times []. But you probably choose to ignore any opinion that's not in line with your ideology?

        There is a plan for 5.12, see for example here [] which is a recent statement of intention. Concerning fixing release dates, I consider that pointless [] and I don't understand why you think release dates matter.

        Also, I don't like at all the way you systemically mischaracterise 5.10 by spreading FUD -- yes, I'm using the word again -- about how it would

        • Raphael, I've been a long-time reader of both your blogs and chromatic's. You seem to basically characterize anyone who agrees with chromatic as 'less experienced'. That's a bit insulting. You can count me as one of your former readers now. And that makes me more sad than angry.
          • Being less experienced in technical and open source project management issues than Rafael is a very broad statement and certainly not an insult. I consider myself part of that group yet I've been around longer than most.

            • It's one thing to present it like it's a fact (I'm in the same group as you, actually more so). However, it's quite another to use it as a defense of one's tenuous arguments, and as a way of disregarding the opposing view. To me, painting everyone who agrees with chromatic as such falls into the latter, and indicates the person making the argument is unwilling to listen and unreasonable to deal with.
